Go into device manager under Start --> Control Panel --> system --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> right click device and follow any troubleshooting that Microsoft reccomends

If that fails to resolve, try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

My Sansa fuze is frozen! Help! It was connected to a laptop computer. I shut down the computer & THEN disconnected the fuze & now the fuze appears to be frozen....nothing at all happens when I push...


In order to solve this problem you have to push the 'off' switch toward the power button. Hold it for roughly about 10 seconds and it will automatically shut off. Hope this helps =)

My computer does not recognize Sansa Fuze


Hi there,

On your computer, Go to Windows Task Manager or Control Panel. Find the Device Manager. There should be a list called Plug-N-Play Devices.

Find the one that should have the driver details of your SanDisk Sansa Fuze Digital Media Player.
Right click on it and select Uninstall.

Now plug in your MP3 Player again to the computer. This time your computer should detect that your MP3 player is connected and will install the drivers for the MP3 player again.

Hope I was of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

Sansa Fuze player will not connect to the computer


Hello,

The Sansa Fuze information support is on next site:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3249/

Sansa Fuze can connect in either MTP or MSC mode.
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol when a software program like Windows
Media Player 10 or higher is installed.
MSC is Mass Storage Class when the player is detected as an external flash drive in "My Computer".

The connection mode can be set to one of the following USB modes:
auto detect:
the player will connect in MTP or MSC mode. It depends on the drivers that are installed for the USB ports for the operating system and extra media software, if the data on the player can be detected. In auto detect
mode, MTP mode detection is only possible when having Windows Media Player 10 or higher installed.
mtp:
detection on operating system Windows XP SP2 or higher, in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
msc:
detection on operating system Windows in the explorer in "My Computer" and on MAC operating system.

Look in the manual on page 35 = page 38 in the pdf file, how to switch the USB mode under System Settings in the player:

I don't know how to get music onto my Sansa Fuze.


Hello,

There's a Sandisk support site for the Sansa Fuze, see:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3249/

Sansa Fuze user manual in pdf format:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/FUZE/fuze_userguide_en.pdf

Important
There are 2 ways the Fuze can be connected to a computer to transfer
music: MTP mode or MSC mode, read page 16 (=13) of the manual.
The player can be set to automatic detection of the connection mode
or can be set to either one of the available connections.

MTP mode is used for transfers using software like Sansa Media Manager or Windows Media Player 11.

MSC mode is used for transfers using the "drag and drop" method in the computer's explorer.

Once you have connected the mp3player to your computer and open windows media player open the device tab. You should see your device listed there. Or you can look in My computer from the Windows Start tab. You should get on screen directions from there.

"Not enough space for music DB. Please free 90MB"


What has happened is that when you connected the device to the computer if automatically downloaded everything on your media files thus filling up your MP3 player
You need to go in and delete the files you do not want. click the bottom part of the disk or dial and it will show a menu to delete FIRST,
you must let the battery run down(disconnect the cable and when the battery has discharged, you can plug it back in to recharge, then you can work with it to delete some of those files that are overloading you device This happened to me and this was the only way to unlock it when it locked up
